  • DAY 1- A Day in Old Town (7 hours); this  is a daily walking tour and we will be visiting the most important historical monuments from Byzantium, Roman and Ottoman; Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Roman Hippodrome and Underground Cistern. We will have enough time for lunch and a few coffe breaks as well. I also have priority to buy the entrance tickets. Prices starts from 25 € per hour for guiding and plus the entrance fees (around 30 € per person).
  • DAY 2- Bosphorus Cruise , Golden Horn Walks & Chora Museum (8 hours); this tour is consisting of the most fascinating religious masterpiece of Byzantium; the Church Of Chora and a nice walk in the neigbourhoods of Golden Horn (optionaly a visit to Pier Loti Hill), plus a boat cruise in the Bosphorus. Since all of the attractions are far from each other we will need to use a private vehicle (alternatively if you are less than 4 person we may use taxi as well which will be cheaper than a private vehicle). Prices starts from 25 € per person for guiding (plus entrance fees and 120 € for a private vehicle).
